Not to expensive when my cousin owns a 4 wheel alignment machine.

As for the crashbars, there should be one at the front and back of the car. I am going to make a lighter version in case it helps with chassis rigidity and weld a good tow eye onto it as well.

That's handy.I thought you ment that company that Does race setups that you mentioned on here before. But I suppose you want to have your tyres and other stuff all chosen before going that road.

Have you any designs in mind for the crash bars for keeping it nice and ridigid. Would aluminium work or are you sticking with steel

I was thinking about this and reckon that a 40mm angle iron maybe 5mm thick should be up to the job of keeping the chassis legs in check. Or 32mm box with a solid insert on the ends drilled for the 2 mounting bolts. Will mock up something soon and let you know.

Great car for 2 people to own, having ran this car with another guy from work, I have to say having the car between two people is a great way to keep the costs down on track days.

Come on don't have me take the grinder to it and send the back of it to America.

Looks like Rudolph is up for sale with a new beating heart, interior, gearbox, driveshafts, loom, wheels etc.

Lots of the cars history on this thread.

www.donedeal.ie/cars-for-sale/toyota-mr2-turbo/16254552

Interesting one

Must be lots of people looking at it, I have received plenty of toll fees for it so far.
